undermined u.s. foreign policy. walking into a storm donald trump stirs up another trade route as g 20 leaders arrive in japan. to suicide attacks and capital to kill a police officer and ruined several others. and it's time for round 2 as a number 10 democrats make their pitch for the party's 2020 presidential nomination . now rex tillerson says he was cut out of key decisions during his time as u.s. secretary of state that's according to newly released testimony that he gave to a congressional hearing last month to us an accused donald trump's white house adviser and son and or jarred krishna of operating independently and outside of the state department well let's go straight to john hendren who joins us live now from washington d.c. john this was a 145 page transcript of to lessons testimony that's been revealed with plenty of
revelations in it self talk us through some of the big ones. that's right it many members of the trumpet ministration have refused to testify before congressional committees run by democrats in the u.s. house of representatives but one of them who didn't was rex tillerson the former secretary of state is no longer and administration official and what he said in this more than 140 page report that you talk about is that he was running he was a member of an administration was running dual diplomacy that he often found that gerrard questioner was really running diplomacy in different parts of the world when he was the secretary of state and says that it was a frustrating experience to find that among other things he had to bump into an official from another country in a restaurant and discover that he was having dinner with jared christian or we put together a story with some examples of what his testimony was this is 7 hours of testimony
that he gave and the transcript was released a month later on thursday this is what we found. the united states' former secretary of state says he often had to practice diplomacy in the dark rex tillerson told congress that president donald trump's son in law jared cushion or directed his own foreign policy without tillerson is knowledge president trump did not know him and president trump had no idea about how the process was supposed to work he probably thought oh well this is the way i run my business in a newly released transcript from closed door testimony to the house committee on foreign affairs tillerson says he was surprised to walk into a washington restaurant to find jared cushion or meeting with mexico's foreign secretary i could see the color go out of the face of the foreign secretary of mexico as i very i smiled big and i said welcome to washington and i said i don't want to interrupt what you all are doing i said give me
a call next time you're coming to town tillers and says he was taken aback when he was told cushion or and presidential advisor steve bannon knew of the blockade of qatar before it happened question on or about may 20th 2017 there was apparently a private dinner that was hosted between steve bannon jared cushion or in the rulers of saudi arabia and u.a.e. respectively were you aware of that dinner answer no question that wasn't something you would heard previously answer no question and to clarify sir not prior to when i just said it answer correct question what's your reaction to a meeting of that sort having taken place without your knowledge answer it makes me angry here in washington the revelation of dueling foreign policy is want to seen as a diplomatic debacle foreign policy run as a family business with the agency in charge of diplomacy often sidelined it since they suggest that it's totally chaotic why for example would you appoint
a secretary of state because that's a trouble point not a holdover from obama where you hear so distrustful of your own appointee that you shield him out of the. major decisions trump in 2 hours and had a tempestuous relationship and reportedly called trump a moron by all accounts trump has a much closer relationship with delusions replacement former cia director mike pompei o trump tweeted that pump a it was doing a great job while tillerson was dumb as a rock and lazy as him so according to tiller's and trump brand the white house much like he ran his family business he trusted members of his family jared cushion or and sent him out on the most important missions that tillerson was not a person that he knew well before the president became president of the united states he was an exxon mobil official and trump didn't have a good relationship with of the 2 of them often clashed on style but that might not
be the case with the current secretary of state because mike pompei o was trump's cia director and he moved him over into the secretary of state position what we really don't know right now is whether that dual diplomacy continues and it's possible we won't know until the next secretary of state comes along mr azure and de john hendren there with that update for us from washington d.c. well now we can speak to bruce fein who you just saw in that story and who is also a former u.s. associate deputy attorney general joining us live now also from washington d.c. brace yourselves on the various different administrations and you've watched different administrations come and go and i know everyone does things differently but presumably there is some sort of usual process especially when it comes to the formation of foreign policy. well the yes and what's troublesome here is not only that. you have the secretary of state blindsided but because of the
trumpet ministrations position that anybody who works in the white house not only gerrard questioner but also is a former communications director hope picks as white house counsel donna began and now is communications director kellyanne conway cannot appear before congress they're not confirmed by congress they can't oversee any of these officials it means that he's running not just dual diplomacy but secret diplomacy that is shielded from the american people in congress we don't know what's going on now the last time something like this happened in the united states was when henry kissinger was the national security adviser to president nixon and william rogers was the secretary of state and you may recall kissinger negotiated the opening to china totally in secret from mr rogers he didn't know at all that there was going to be this breakthrough with. say tony after all these years of very very cold relations but it doesn't make it it shows and my judgment that the president is not
himself making wise decisions as as i pointed out in my comments earlier remember the cabinet is appointed by the president he has time to scrutinize look at their background to see whether there philosophically aligned and then he turns around and he criticized his own appointment well he should be criticizing him self because he's the one who made the appointment but i do want to stress the most the most worrisome element here is when the president runs foreign policy just out of the white house it's secret government not just government and remember this also could happen with regard to things more than just foreign diplomacy it could relate to military affairs who knows what's go who's calling the shots on iran and john bolton may be doing it not the secretary of state john bolton's never can. firm by anybody is not subject to oversight by congress and i recall busy in the nixon administration when i was there a jim celestion to the then secretary of defense was so worried that nixon was
being erratic during watergate he issued an order to the military staff do not obey any military director from the white house the president unless you check with me to confirm that it's genuine and not an act of erratic and impulsiveness and that may have happened in this particular situation although it's very troublesome we don't even have a permanent secretary of defense now it's vacant and there's just a nomination bruce i want to ask you a little more about this notion of things being kept secret because various analysts have observed as you have as well how president trump run says white house a little like a family business so how much of this was about his personal relationship to rex tillerson or lack thereof indeed was this a question of trust well i think he doesn't really trust anybody outside of correct is personal family and that's why it's not simply mr tillerson look at the other people that he's turned on his attorney general who's jeff
sessions in fact he's made mr bolton's nasa current adviser look embarrassed regularly by contradicting him so it seems the only people he believes that he can really trust are those who have a personal relationship with him and maybe it's because his character is such that he you know he basically projects on to others his own tribal instincts to just surround himself with insiders and everybody else's subject it to be an expendable at the drop of a hat bruce fein a former us associate deputy attorney general speaking us speaking to us there from washington d.c. always good to your insights on al-jazeera thanks perhaps. well the wilds most powerful leaders are in japan for the latest g. 20 summit ahead of the main gathering us president donald trump is already had meetings with japan's and india's new render
a mighty trump and mighty have been talking trade after recent disputes over the terrorists and trying to criticize japan a long time u.s. ally saying their defense treaty was one scientists. correspondent committee how could now joins us live from our saka can be the summit hasn't officially started yet but trump has already met with. and i believe i'm going to medical the leaders of countries there's already been fairly vocal in his criticism of. yeah i know none of those tensions were apparent though when the meetings got underway as you're right officially this this summit is about climate change it's about empowering women it's about trade but given that the leaders can particularly not agree on the issue of protectionism with respect to trade what's really dominating are these bilateral and trilateral meetings that are taking place and of course when donald trump is involved he often sucks the oxygen out of an event and
this is certainly no exception even before he landed you're right he was criticizing some of the very leaders that he has just sat down with shinzo abbay for that joint defense agreement saying it was very one sided and also criticizing india's leader for the tariffs that have been put in place on u.s. goods but when they started this trilateral meeting between those 3 it started with the fist bump if you will there were all smiles and it didn't appear there was no sort of apparent tension among the leaders donald trump had his sort of usual positive spin he talked about the trade agreements that they will be potentially announcing that he was also asked about iran because of course still in the headlines particularly of interest among americans at around the world is the near miss in that potential military confrontation between the united states and iran donald trump saying that he has a lot of time to potentially work this out with the rons leaders of course he's willing to sit down with the raw.
